Hearings will be held for four people in high-profile cases that occurred in 2019 during Rule Day, Monday, January 6th.
-John W. Moore will find out his fate Monday, January 6th on charges of sodomy 1st degree two counts.
Moore, 48, entered an Alford plea on the charges and will appear in court for final sentencing.

He will appear in court for a pretrial conference.
In January 2019, police chased Daniels into Oneida after he allegedly had stolen a truck. Deputies Jeremy Gabbard and Brandon Edwards pursued Daniels to a dead-end road where he then allegedly used the truck as a weapon and struck both deputies vehicles to escape putting them in a life-threatening situation.
Daniels then exited the truck and ran through the Oneida Baptist Institute campus and jumped into the river. The 6-2, 250lb Daniels proceeded to float in the flooded river for approximately three miles.
Police from several agencies followed along the riverbanks pleading the Daniels to surrender as they feared he would drown in the swollen river.

-Angela Guth, 42, will appear for arraignment in the case of a child being burned by hot water.
